The Amazing Race MK II

By Giga Bowser NS

Episode 4
Title: There’s half of the Teen Girl Squad!

Phil: Previously on, The Amazing Race MK! 9 teams were immediately faced with a tough Roadblock in the middle of the forest. It was then teams learned they would be flying to the far off land of Sarasaland. It became increasingly evident that booking flights… would be no picnic.

Neil: We’re gonna be stuck here for god knows how long!

Phil: Taking a huge chance, Foshi & Xoshi hopped on a flight to Rogueport. The risk paid off, and they made it to Sarasaland long before anyone else.

Kooper: Foshi & Xoshi look like geniuses!

Phil: Turmoil continued in the airport when Patrick and Norman were yanked off a flight after they had already settled into their seats. Though they were a full day ahead, Foshi & Xoshi had no idea of their placement, which led to their use of the Yield. Their target was Neil and Ella, who fell behind as a result and were eliminated. Now… 8 teams remain. Who will be eliminated… next?!

The opening plays with a new Red X over Neil and Ella

Phil: This is Sarasaland!!! Sister to the Mushroom Kingdom, the land is diverse and beautiful, stretching from ocean to mountain. It is ruled by Daisy, whose love for flowers is evident throughout the land. This is Daisy’s Gardens, the largest flower garden… in either kingdom. This… was the third Pit Stop… in a race around the MK. Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. The 8 teams waiting here have no idea what’s in store for them. As a result of airport problems in the previous leg, five teams are now approximately 24 hours ahead of the other three. Can these flailing teams catch up? Foshi and Xoshi, who were the first to arrive at 9:13 PM Thursday… will depart at 9:13 AM Friday, before three teams have even checked into the Pit Stop.


Xoshi: All right, you ready? Fly to Cheep Cheep Beach!

Foshi: Ugh…

Phil: Teams must now fly across the continent to return to the Mushroom Kingdom. They are headed to this place: Cheep Cheep Beach. When they land, teams must search these nearby dock houses for their next clue.

Foshi: Ugh… All right, let’s get to the airport

***Foshi: I could tell I was not going to enjoy this leg. I really hate water, and it’s my only fear…

Xoshi: Taxi! Taxi!

***Foshi: Xoshi and I came in first twice, so we knew we just had to work hard to finish strong again!

Foshi: Here! Get in!

*door shutting sound*

Foshi: How far ahead are we?

Xoshi: I don’t know!

***Xoshi: While we were staying at the Pit Stop we only saw a few teams. We don’t know how far ahead we are because we slept through almost the whole thing, and when we woke up it was time to go. We just caught a glimpse of others.

Xoshi: They certainly have their work cut out for them…

Foshi: We have to get to the airport…

Foshi: Oy! What do ya think’s going on?

Xoshi: It’s all dark…

Foshi: Hm…

Xoshi: Oh, look! There’s someone!

Foshi: S’cuse me, sir! What’s going on? We need to get on a flight.

Zamu: Oh my, well the whole airport is shut down.

Foshi: What? Why?!

Zamu: Power outage!

Foshi: … What?

Zamu: Well, we can’t let any planes take off or land with no power! A nearby storm has knocked out the main cable, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be operational until tomorrow…

Both: …

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers – 9:49 AM

Iggy: Fly to Cheep Cheep Beach!

Lemmy: Excellent! Let’s go! Now! Go!

***Iggy: Me ‘n’ my brother are doing fine. We haven’t come in first, but there’s too many teams now. We just have to keep strong and wait for the pack to thin.

Lemmy: Let’s get to the airport!

Iggy: We’re off! Woo!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Hm, well… All the teams we saw at the Pit Stop will catch up.

Xoshi: Yeah

Foshi: But I don’t know about the others…

Xoshi: They seemed pretty far behind.

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Foshi: Oh, boy! Look who it is!

Xoshi: Hey…

Iggy: THERE you guys are!

Lemmy: We haven’t seen you in forever!

Foshi: Yeah, we had quite a lead there.

Xoshi: Cop a seat, no flights ‘til tomorrow!

Iggy: …

Lemmy: Liar…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas – 10:21 AM
Ana: *snicker* Okay, Kat! You’re not selling the clue envelope! Stop showing it off!

Kat: Heh… *acts like the models on infomercials* This stunning clue can be yours for only $19.99!


Kat: Fly to Cheep Cheep Beach

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters – 10:22 AM
Tiny: …search the huts for your next clue!

Dixie: Let’s go, ladies!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
***Kat: We’re staying strong with our alliance.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
***Dixie: One must have friends, and those friends need to be trustworthy and able to stay near you in the pack!

***Ana: It’s helping us pick off the weaker teams…

Dixie: There! It’s the van taxi I called!

Ana: Let’s get there!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners – 10:31 AM

Paratroopa: Search the beach huts…

Koopa: Perfect! Let’s go!

Paratroopa: More flying!

Koopa: Don’t faint with joy…

Paratroopa: No promises!

Koopa: Oy! Taxi!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Dixie: Go! Hurry!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: *annoyed look* Calm down, there’s no flights tonight.

Tiny: No flights? Whaaaaaaaaaat?

Dixie: Did you check?

Foshi: No, we gave up after one random person told us the airport was closed. Of course we checked!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Hello?

Paratroopa: Look! Everyone’s over there!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Ugh… More people to be stuck with… Great…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
***Dixie: Foshi is kinda brash. He doesn’t have much compassion, and is driven solely by his competitive drive…

***Tiny: It kinda makes him difficult to be around… so we don’t like him.

Dixie: Hm…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends – 10:54 AM

Kooper: All right! To Cheep Cheep Beach we go!

Koops: Hm… That sounds nice… Calm…

Kooper: Heh… No such thing on this race!

***Kooper: Koops is dealing with all his fears internally… I… well, it may hinder us…

Kooper: Let’s GOOOO!

Koops: O.O  Oww…

Kooper: Airport… We’re here…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: There they are! The last team to arrive yesterday…

Kooper: What up?

Foshi: Dude, did you see any other teams?

Kooper: No! No sign of the other two teams. They must have fallen REALLY far behind…

Koops: No kidding…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: *yawn* All right, let’s go grab a spot in line…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Have we all decided to honor the line?

Various: Yeah…

Foshi: All right, g’night!

Xoshi: Good night…

The morning sun rises and reflects over Muda Sea…

All the teams are standing neatly in line, with Foshi & Xoshi at the front.

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: All right! Hi! We need a flight immediately to Cheep Cheep Beach!

Xoshi: As fast as possible.

Pionpi: Hmmmm… Weeellllll… We have a fliiiiiight at nooooooooon!

Both: …

Foshi: Uhh, sure, do you have space availability? We need, two, tickets.

Pionpi: Yessssss… There’s looooots of spaaaaceee!

Norman: Oy vey, it’s a new day and we’re off…

***Norman: We’re really far behind, and we don’t know if we’ll ever catch up!

Patrick: Ughh… To the airport. *yawn* Taxi!

Patrick: Do you have flights to Cheep Cheep Beach?

Gao: Gao! All flights are full! You will not get on until 7:30! Gao!

Both: …

Patrick: Hmm…

The sun flies over the sky…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master – 7:05 PM
Snifit: Booster. Focus. Please.

Booster: NO! YES! BOTH! HI!


Snifit: Hmm… Okay Booster, listen closely:

Booster: *dumb look*

Second Flight – Patrick/Norman, Booster/Snifit – 7:31 PM

All Teams: …

PA: Attention passengers, our plane was accidentally not given enough fuel. We are going to have to make a Pit Stop in Rogueport. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Grrrrrrrr…

Xoshi: Are we gonna get there on time? Will we still be in first?

Foshi: I don’t know…

Various shots of the beach are shown. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and people are lounging. The camera moves to the airport, separated by that path through the forest.

First Flight – 12:01 PM
Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: Go now!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: C’mon! Let’s get our lead back!

Foshi: “Use the provided ATVs to get to the Beach Huts.” We have to drive?

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: There! I see the cars!

Kat: Nice, Eagle Eye!

***Kat: I call Ana Eagle Eye because it’s an old name from our heritage and she has a pet eagle, but I never thought it would actually apply to her! Heh heh heh…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Off on another adventure!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: C’mon, Ig! Step it up!

Iggy: Shaddup, Sonic!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Wheeeeeeeeeeee! That was FUN!!!

***Paratroopa: The flight was really long, and I enjoyed it!

Koopa: Follow me!

Various engines are heard starting.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Go! Go! Drive! Drive!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: (pointing his finger just beyond the camera) Onward!

Xoshi: … Yeah, no…

The five teams speed off.

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: *groan*

***Koops: I was definitely not feeling very well after the long flight. My stomach was not settling well…

Kooper: You gonna be okay, bud?

***Koops: I knew we had to press on…

Kooper: C’mon, let’s get goin’!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: We’re here! Where are the girls?

Ana: They’re coming!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: You two are faster! Go to the last few huts and start looking! We’ll start here!

Kat: Gotcha! Let’s go, Sis!

Tiny: Eyah! I hope we find it soon!

Dixie: “There are two huts containing hidden clues.” Hidden clues! So give ‘er a good look’er’ound!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: C’mon, Foshi! Give the houses a quick look!

Foshi: Right! Let’s beat ‘em!

Xoshi: It should be obvious, right?

Foshi: Right!


Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Hey! Don’t start without us!

Dramatic music plays.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Anything in here? Check upstairs!

Tiny: Gah! Who lives here? The place is a mess!

Dixie: I know! Pretty view, though…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Koopa: Para! Give it a quick fly-through! Use those wings!

Paratroopa: Haha! I love coming in handy!

Koopa: Maybe we can surge ahead!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Okay, dude, let’s go look for some. All the teams are there…

Koops: Ugh… Okay…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Grrrr… I can’t find it!!! GRAAAAAHHH! *flares*

Xoshi: Dude! Watch it! There used to be a dresser there!

Foshi: Oh… Oops…

Xoshi: -.-

Foshi: Wasn’t me…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Mnnnnn… Where are these things?!

Tiny: *opens a cupboard, gasps* Omigawd, here! I got it!

Dixie: *gasp* Really? Great! *ahem* AWWW!!! IT’S NOT IN ANY OF THESE!!!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Ooh! That’s the signal, let’s go!

Ana: Excellent! Excellent!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Good job, Li’l Sis! Let’s get this done before the other flight gets here…

Tiny: I wonder where they are…

Dixie: Who cares? Openit!


Tiny: Detour!!!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. In this Detour, both options involve catching something found around these Beaches. The choice? Catch 1… or Catch 3. In Catch 1, teams walk a short distance under these beautiful coral outcroppings to find this sand pit. Here, teams must catch one Sidestepper. Only one is required to finish the task, but Sidesteppers are notoriously fast and evasive. In Catch 3, teams walk a slightly longer distance to this beach. Here, they must use nets to catch 3 Cheep Cheeps. This task requires more animals be caught, but Cheep Cheeps are slow and stupid.

Tiny: C’mon, let’s get onto the beach and read it.

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: Where was it? Here?

Kat: I found it!


Both: Detour!

Ana: I think we should go for the crab. We’re fast enough!

Kat: Sounds good!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Ooh! Look! In here! They found one!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Eh, let’s get outta here!


Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Okay, Detour.

Iggy: Let’s just get the fish. We’ll get done faster…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Okay, what should we do?

Tiny: I’m not sure…

Dixie: Look! There’s the girls! Hey! Over here!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: ‘Kay, girls, what are you doing?

Ana: We’re going for the crab.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Mnn… I dunno…

Tiny: Those things are tricky..

Dixie: No, we’re gonna catch the fish

All 4: …

Kat: Okay…

***Kat: It was the first time since the very start of the race that we were going to be separated.

Ana: Good luck!


Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Detour!!!

Koopa: Catch 1 or 3?

Paratroopa: 1! Duh!

Koopa: I didn’t even read it yet!

Paratroopa: Who cares? Come on!

Second Flight – 12:20 PM
Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Norman: I’m just EXCITED!! I can feel that we’re gonna do excellent! Yeah!!! Woooooo!

Patrick: …

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Plane! Plane! Plane!

Snifit: Uh, hey! Um, there’s… oh who cares! COME!!!

He drags Booster away.


The music picks up.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: All right, Sis, let’s do this!

Tiny: Let’s catch some o’ these stupids!

Cheep Cheep: Hey! Did you call me stupid?

Tiny: … Um, no… You did.

Cheep Cheep: What? Me sonuva… I’m gonna kick my butt, I’m so mad at me! Gaaaaah!

He punches himself.

Tiny: … Um… One down…

Dixie: … That was… hilarious…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: There’s half of the Teen Girl Squad!

Iggy: Let’s go! We’ll beat them!

Lemmy: C’mere, fish! Raaaaaaaaaaaaar!!!

All the fish swim away.

Iggy: -.-  Like father, like son…

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Ana: You ready for this?

Kat: Where are the crabs?

Ana: They’re all around, they’re scurrying…

Sidestepper: Reeblrereaaaaramnaaaar!

Ana: Heehee! They’re kinda funny…

Kat: Funny or not, they DIE! ... I mean… get caught…

Ana: Okay… I got him… Nope…

Kat: Okay… Be cool…

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: We’re here!

Koopa: Oh boy, they look pretty difficult to catch.

Paratroopa: Don’t worry! I’ll fly after them.

Koopa: Okay…

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Oh, HERE! I finally got one!

Xoshi: Finally! We’re like looking all over the place!


Foshi: Detour…

Xoshi: Let’s just catch the fish…

Foshi: Mn… Are you sure? You don’t think we can catch the Sidesteppers?

Xoshi: No way! Those things are freakin’ fast!

Kat/Ana -- Sisters / Ninjas
Kat: Grab him! Grab him grab him grab him!!!

Ana: Waaaaaaaaaah!!! *splash*

Kat: Ah, darn!

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners

Patrick/Norman -- Friends
Patrick: *huff…* Okay, man! We’re here!

Norman: Wow! Look at this place… It’s beautiful… It’s just like Delfino Island…

Patrick: I know! Why have we never vacationed here?

Norman: Hey man! Focus!

Patrick: Yeah! Right! We gotta find a clue in these beach huts!

Norman: Let’s begin!

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Koops: Oh… shoot… The other flight is here…

Kooper: No wai!!! I refuse to believe that!

Koops: Ugh. Nope… it’s true…

Kooper: Hm… Well, we’ll just have to persevere. We’ll find it eventually if we ju… got Gt! Let’s go!

Koops: Great…


Kooper: Detour… Oh, man, they’re both catching things…

Koops: Sidesteppers? No way, man. They’re too fast. I won’t be able to catch up.

Kooper: All right, we’re doing Catch 3

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Tiny: I caught another one!

Dixie: Excellent! Excellent! We’re doing awesome!

Tiny: I hope the girls are doing okay…

Dixie: It feels surreal not having them here.

***Tiny: We knew we had to do what we thought was right…

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Ha! Yes! I caught you! I caught Yoooooooooooou!

Iggy: We just… got our first fish…

Lemmy: We’re doin’ all right…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master

Koops: A’ight…

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: C’mon, Sis, people are gaining.

Dixie: We just have to get one more!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Xoshi: I got one, Fosh…

Foshi: Ehh… mn…

Xoshi: Why aren’t you getting any?

Foshi: Ugh… I HATE water… So… cold… powers. Water, snow, ice, they all send shivers up my spine and quell my inner flame. Even hot water! Brrrr…

Drums accompany a camera shift.

Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Waahah! C’mere, you!!! Grrr!!!

***Paratroopa: Oh, boy! It soon became evident we-

***Koopa: We thought we chose the wrong one

***Paratroopa: -wrong task! Those things are like lightning!

Tiny: Yep

Dixie: Shoot…

Patrick: That one… the Catch 1. It’s faster.

Norman: Whaaaat?

Patrick: It’s faster.

Norman: Than this?!

Patrick: Trust me. S’faster.

Norman: Okay…

A helicopter flies overhead, filming all the teams doing the tasks. There is much splashing.

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie stares.

Dixie: …

Tiny: … NOW!!!


*Dramatic Pause*

Dixie: I got it! I got it!

Tiny: Yeahoo!!!

Dixie: We did it! Yeaaaaahhhh!

Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Iggy: Aww, man…


Dixie: Return back to the coral…

Phil: Teams must now backtrack along the pristine beach until they come to the coral overhangs. They must then wade out behind the large rocky structure to find their next clue hidden there.

Dixie: Wahoo! We did awesome!

Tiny: We sure did!

Dixie: Let’s get going before anyone else catches up!

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends
Foshi: Mannnn… We finally lost our lead.

Xoshi: Sure did last a while, huh?

Foshi: C’mon, we gotta catch more!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Snifit: Okay, Booster… C’mon! We havta catch these fish!

Booster: Wa! Fishy burgers! NOOOMMMM!!!

Snifit: Umm, woah! Hold on there, buddy!

Lemmy: Good…

Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: I got it! I got it!!!

Koops: Excellent!...

***Koops: He totally made up for my shortcomings in the Detour.


Kooper: Coral Reefs…

Koops: Ooh, nice!

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
Booster: Yah! I gots two?

Snifit: Oh! Awesome! You sure di- DON’T EAT THEM!

Booster: :D

Foshi/Xoshi -- Lifelong Friends

Ana stares, panting.

Kat: … HI YAH!!!

Ana: … Yes! YES! YEAH!!!

Kat: I got a Sidestepper!!! Finally!

Ana: That took waaaaaay too long…


Kat: Okay. Let’s head off.

Ana: I wonder if the girls are done…

Kat: Hm…

Booster/Snifit -- Lackey + Master
***Snifit: We were one of the last ones at the Catch 3 Detour, but I wasn’t worried. Booster was in fish catching mode. Do you know how hard it is to get him into “Modes”?

Snifit: There’s one! There’s one! Get it!!!


Snifit: Go, man, go! Go, man, go!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: Ooh, look at this!

Tiny: Pretty!

Dixie: Come on!

Tiny: Ack! I don’t wanna damage my hair!

Dixie: Just step back here! The clue box is in the water! That’s hilarious!

He hear a clue being taken out of a plastic bag.


Dixie: It is a Roadblock!

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform. No person may do more than 6 Roadblocks on the entire race! In this Roadblock, one team member must immerse themselves in the wonders of Cheep Cheep Beach… hidden below the surface. They must don Scuba gear and take a dive deep down to the coral reefs underwater. They must then search for this clue…

The camera shows a small box embedded within the coral.

Phil: …which will direct them to this place: the underwater caves. These majestically beautiful subterranean caves are where they will meet up with their partner, who has been teleported here by a Magikoopa, and where they will check into the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. The last team to check in here… may be eliminated…

Dixie: Who’s ready to take the plunge?

Tiny: I dunno, you wanna do it?

Dixie: Sure! Sounds like fun!

Tiny: Okay! Go ahead!
Koopa/Paratroopa -- Partners
Paratroopa: Aha! Ahaaaa! Yessss!!!

Koopa: Unbelievable! You actually caught one! Amazing!

Paratroopa: Wings! Can’t live without ‘em!

Koopa: Hey, shaddup!


Koopa: Coral overhang, let’s go!


Iggy/Lemmy -- Brothers
Lemmy: Omigod! You stupid fish! I kill you!

Iggy: You finally got it?

Lemmy: Yeah! Man, we fell behind!


Iggy: All right! Off!


Kooper/Koops -- Recent Friends
Kooper: Roadblock…

Koops: You do it, I’m too sick…

Kooper: Okee dokee!

Dixie/Tiny -- Sisters
Dixie: All right! Get this gear on!

Pianata: Yes, yes, just slip this on, please!

Dixie: Woah, it’s kinda heavy…

Pianata: Take this, put it in your mouth!

Dixie: This is gonna be exciting!

Xoshi: We’re here! We gotta go behind there!

Foshi groans.

***Foshi: I was already feeling the effects of water weakening me. I couldn’t handle much more…

Xoshi: C’mon, bud! You gotta come with me. We’ll go fast!

Foshi: Go! Go!

Major splashing is heard, and soon they are back on land.


Xoshi: De-Roadblock…

Foshi: (shivering) Y-y-y-y-y-y-you, p-p-p-p-p-p-p-please…
